Dhaka, Oct 21 – The High Court on Sunday granted advance bail to Gonoshasthaya Kendra trustee Dr Zafrullah Chowdhury in two cases over illegally occupying land in Dhaka’s Ashulia, vandalism and extortion. Justice Muhammad Abdul Hafiz and Justice Mohi Uddin Shamim accepted the bail after Zafrullah Chowdhury appeared before the court seeking bail.
Supreme Court Bar Association President and Senior Advocate Zainul Abedin represented Zafrullah at the hearing.
The court granted Zafrullah bail until the case reports were ready, Abedin told the media people after the hearing.
Zafrullah, who has played an active role in forming the anti-government alliance between the BNP and Dr Kamal Hossain, had recently faced criticism after making false statements regarding the Army Chief on a Somoy TV talk show. He is also facing a sedition case in Dhaka over the remarks.
He faces two cases in Ashulia over illegal occupation of land and the another over extortion.
The two cases accuse Zafrullah and other Gonoshasthaya Kendra and Gono Bishwabidyalay officials of attempting to illegally occupy land and demanding Tk 10 million through extortion.
One of them has been filed by a Manikganj resident named Mohammad Ali, while the other was filed by an individual, named Hassan Imam. – special correspondent
